Lady in Red: My favourite new season buy

I’m an outfit planner. I usually have a list of items waiting to be purchased when the student loan comes in, but occasionally an item will come along that throws all my purchase plans out the window.

This glorious red trench was definitely one of those items.

Part trench coat, part matador cape, I couldn’t not have this amazing piece in my life! I envisioned it for all the job interviews I’m going to have over the next few months (hahahahahaha) because it’s such a smart and classic coat, with just the right amount of personality thrown in to represent me.

Let’s start with the colour. Nothing screams ‘statement piece’ like phone box red! I love wearing clothes that get me noticed. After all, life is too short to blend in. But it was the cape sleeves that really captured my heart. This is such a genius, high-end looking, contemporary update for the classic trench.

Oh yeah, and the cape sleeves aren’t sewn down, so I can turn this into a trench-dress with on-trend cape back. Who said a trench-come-matador cape wouldn’t be versatile?

Keep working those surprising outfit choices guys and gals,
